Irish Chain Twist Quiltalong

Call me crazy, cause I don't already have enough projects going, but I'm jumping into Melissa's Irish Chain Twist Quilt-along at!

Not sure exactly what's motivating me, maybe it's the chance to use up my stash, making friends with the other quilters, or the chance to win prizes!  Who knows--but it's sure looks like fun!  And it will be my first quilt-along participation--pretty exciting, for me at least!

Each week she's posting a new step in making this quilt, and so far, we've chosen fabric and cut it.  I'm making a baby size (that way my house doesn't become overrun by quilts!), completely from my stash.  No purchasing here!

My background is another black on white print. Maybe I'm subconsciously working in a B/W series, but I really think it's because I'm tired of solid white backgrounds, and I had lots of yardage of this print!  Other additions are lime green for the squares, teal for the X's, and hot pink for the petals.
Everything is all cut.  Just awaiting the next step!  Won't you join us???

Happy Quilting!
